Panel 1: Segmented labour markets – from simple diagnosis to encompassing solutions?

Thursday 25 September 09:00-10:40

Panel 1 Segmented labour markets – from simple diagnosis to encompassing solutions?

Segmented labour markets seem to have become a permanent feature of the European labour markets, with various sub-groups in the labour markets having little or no possibility to make positive transitions in the labour market. The causes and consequences of segmentation are different across the European member states as economic tissue, labour market developments as well as institutional settings compound or compensate for the different statuses in the labour market. This session will set out a comprehensive picture of segmentation in the European labour market: how does segmentation occur, who are segmented and what are the consequences? Policy solutions to deal with segmentation will be discussed.
